Moulds are primarily used for bonbon production. You can specify the number of moulds and the number of cavitites in each mould. If you then multiply the weight of the recipe with the total number of cavities you get a total batch size. This batch size can then be given a scale factor to handle overproduction. This scale factor is used for proper cost calculations. If you need more info on using the calculator for bonbon production please contact the support.
